Dirty Truths

Dirty Truths

For those of you starting a career or considering a different one: freelancing is the current rage and may be your best option. But only maybe. Dirty Truths examines what it takes to jam your foot in the door of self-employed opportunity, force it wider, and then slam it shut on competitors. Dirty Truths is an invaluable guide to navigating the demanding and frequently unforgiving freelance landscape, especially that of writing and other dodgy professions. No academic discourse or high-minded essays here: Dirty Truths is a dirty examination of a dirty way of life, filled with hilarious anecdotes and savage observations about the writing trade and its practitioners. Those who embrace this highly-unorthodox how-to book will be well equipped to withstand the career challenges ahead. Of course, readers may conversely be persuaded by Dirty Truths to pursue more conventional ways of making a living. And that's fine. You have to be a bit warped to go it alone in this increasingly uniform work world anyway.
